Hunting Retired Fiesta

February 26, 2018 | Posted in Tips & Tricks

Have you ever seen a piece of Fiesta Dinnerware featured on our social channels that you just had to have, only to realize it’s been out of production for years? We love showing off our beautiful vintage and recently retired pieces, but know it can get frustrating when you head to our website to find it’s not there! We’re making up for that today by giving you our top tips to find retired Fiesta items and colors.

  1. Shop Garage/Yard/Estate Sales

One person’s trash is another person’s treasure! Check signs around your neighborhood (especially in the warmer months) for garage/yard/estate sales in your area.

  1. Antique Shops

Antique stores are great places to find retired Fiesta Dinnerware. If your local antique store, or thrift store is picked over in the dinnerware department, try stopping by out-of-town antique stores when you’re traveling. You never know what you’ll find!

  1. Replacements, Ltd

The one stop shop for any of your retired Fiesta needs, has everything from recently retired to vintage!

  1. Online auction websites (like eBay)

We have heard from many collectors that online auction websites are where they score their best discontinued Fiesta Dinnerware. To make sure you’re getting a good deal on eBay, search for the item you’re looking to buy, then check ‘sold listings’ under the ‘show only’ section on the left. This will show you a list of prices similar auctions have fetched. Don’t pay more than the average!

  1. Facebook Groups

Search for Facebook groups like “Fiestaware trade/buy/sell”, and others to find fellow Fiesta Dinnerware lovers who may just be selling the missing piece to your collection.

  1. Fiesta Dinnerware outlets and website

We are always finding discontinued items in our factory (not very surprising when you consider our factory is over a mile long!) and will put it out for sale in our outlets. On our website, you can find recently discontinued colors like Tangerine and Claret!

We hope these tips will help in your upcoming retired Fiesta Dinnerware searches. Happy hunting!
